    Waste

    Today we have many jobs that are a waste and are created just to give someone a job. At school I see 5 people in the office that are not needed but the principal wants to be nice and give them a job. We as taxpayers are paying for unnecessary placements that are not needed. The...

    And You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet
